Barry Sweeney, the father of one of the passengers killed on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, has been speaking to the BBC.

He said he wished he had been on the plane instead of his son Liam Sweeney, who was 28, and his terminally-ill wife would have swapped places as well.

The plane went down near the village of Grabovo in eastern Ukraine on Thursday, killing all 298 people on board.
